FAG has changed its policy regarding member copyright. Though I don't like that they did not continue to protect the copyright of their contributors in regards to usage there is not much I can do about it. I STILL retain copyright to my photos and do not give permission for them to be republished in any form. That means NO to FamilySearch, that means NO to your personal webpage, that means NO to any other use by you other than attaching to your private family tree in your private family tree files on your computer. You may not use my photos to publish your book, send to family etc.

Whether you understand or agree with me about this matter or not, I have the right to make that choice for my work. I will not argue copyright with you.

***Transfer Request Rules LINK***
Please use the edit tab at the top right of the memorial you are referring to when sending updates, links and transfer requests.
(Please take the time to read the transfer request rules by following the link above). For the most part, I adhere to the transfer guidelines. I do NOT add link to a burial unknown memorial. This is FINDAGRAVE folks! Not "List Everyone Who Ever Died"!

CULLY MEMORIAL Cully may have some un-photographed stone due to heavy coverage of bushes, vines, Iris etc. I did my best but this was a hard one.


NOTE: FAG FAQ say not to add cut and paste obituaries. In trying to comply with this rule I have turned down adding obituaries that have been sent to me. It has become apparent that FAG is adding these obits when people send them to edit@. Since FAG admins are adding I will too. Remove the names of the living before sending the obituary per FAG's "other" rule and the obituary must have attribution too.

NOTE 2: Before there was a rule against it. I added many obituary scans to memorials from our local newspaper from the early 1900. I have now attempted to go back and transcribe all of these into the bio area. Unfortunately it is very difficult to find ones that are not on my own memorials. If you find one please bring it to my attention and I will transcribe it and send it to the memorial manager. Thank you for your help.

RE: C.E. Watson
Thanks for the updates on the Watson family plot! The photo showing the location of the headstones is helpful. I also thought the CEW marker could be Clara's, but more likely it is her child considering where it is located. The death/birth records for that area don't seem to exist prior to 1910, so there doesn't seem to be a paper trail.

I checked and it appears that there is a connection to the Clark family, but not until 1921, when Clara and Samuel's daughter Vera married Guy Clark. They did have a son James, but he lived until 1993. I don't know where he is buried as I haven't really explored Vera and Guy's family. There's a lot more research I need to do to see how everything fits together.

I also checked to see if any of Samuel's brothers lived in the area, and it does not appear so. He did have a half-brother Charles, but he was Charles Alvin Watson, and he still lived in Indiana as late as 1942 (I don't have a death date or place for him yet).

This gives me a lot to work on, and I will definitely let you know if I am able to solve this puzzle. Thank you so much for taking an interest and taking the time to go out to the cemetery!

Hi! I have submitted an Edit for the above person. Rev J. W. Hammond and his wife Mattie
You have him listed as Joseph W. Hamond
My Edit is based on my locating and photographing the marker(s) for him and his wife Mattie.
I will upload them probably tonight. Their last name is spelled Hammond on their marker.

Charles Edward Watson
Hi Chuck,

I have been working on the Watson line and found your memorial for Charles Watson. I believe your thinking is correct that this is in fact not Charles, but rather a child born to either Clara and Samuel, or more likely, Bessie and Samuel.

I have located the real Charles Edward Watson in Portland, Oregon. He is buried next to his brother, William.

I don't know what you want to do with this memorial (if anything). I am still searching to find who C.E.W. could be, but so far I'm having no luck. I will let you know if I ever find out who this is.

Thanks for all the wonderful work you do!

Thank you! I understand why you can't change the listing. I appreciate you putting the correct information in his bio.

RE: Nels Amundson
Chuck we are working out of the MonDak Heritage Center in Sidney which is apprx. 75 miles away from Circle. We entered Nels wife as we are working through the Jensen family. I am not sure about Circle's cemetery as to who you could contact to have it checked out. Sorry I couldn't be of more assistance.

RE: Photo request
I understand Chuck, I may start doing that. We'll see. I don't drive, so I take the bus so I already take out a fair amount of things with me to survive the cemeteries.
I could add a plastic flower, in the case of Sarah Kiely, it wouldn't matter anyway, because the photo for her is going to be nothing more than an overtall pile of grasses, weeds, some shrubs and maybe some flowers.
Thanks for the suggestions, Sue

RE: Photo request
I will Edit her memorial with location. I don't know how to do what you suggest with a photo showing "no location". At any point, she is in a non-endowed part of Greenwood, so that would be, I think, rather impossible to show. Sue

RE: Saint Josephs Cemetery
Hey Chuck, no problem. My son picked St. Joe's Cemetery to do his Eagle Scout Project. He has worked with Mark Lamb with the Catholic Church main office, who provided a list of all persons buried in the cemetery. So my sons project was to map and take pic of each stone in the cemetery then download to Billiongraves. When all said and done there were about 100 peeps missing without a square on my sons map, so Mr. Lamb let us use the actual maps of the cemetery to find the missing names. My son went to the cemetery and confirmed that each of those names did not have a stone. The issue is BG is not a very easy program to use and would not let my son add the missing names. So he decided to use findagrave to at least document the NO STONE peeps.

The maintenance man (Damien) stated that the Cemetery would provide a silver plaque for those that could not afford a stone, however, the families would come and take those silver plaques home with them.

Let me know if you have any quesetions.
